It's a nice idea but I think that many rugs from other origins having borders containing stylized scrolling vines and flowers could then also be related.
What's sure is that the flowers contained in the main border of the Eagleton rug were very common in North Eastern Persia and surrounding area. This kind of flowers have been used as well field filler elements as in the borders.
Do you know why the flame like palmettes of the Meyer Muller rug are labeled "Zoroastrian"?.
What is typically Zoroastrian in these palmettes. Can you show other palmettes that were also labeled Zoroastrian.?
Many thanks for your help
